#WebSeriesWednesday this week features the comedic series ‘inSAYSHAble’ – the story follows Saysha, a 30 something female who makes you constantly wonder just how she made it so far in life. Is inSAYSHAble worth your time? Find out!
Comedy is sort of the de facto, go-to genre for web productions because it’s easy to sell the audience on it right off the bat – a real key to a web series’ success. As such web series comedies are a bit of a crowded group and it takes a lot more to stand out.
inSAYSHAble attempts to do this in two major ways – through a highly professional looking production and through a well written main character.
The production values are all high, nice locations, quality actors, excellent sound. These are things so many web productions mess up, but what a lot of inexperienced creators do not realize is that these things are 90% of the production. You can have a brilliant script but you need to have all the technical stuff down or people will stop watching. inSAYSHAble nails it and is one of the most professional looking series on the web.
The other thing I was really glad to see from the show was an actual character – something that is strangely absent from a lot of comedies. Sure most of these shows are funny, but you forget to care. It sort of recalls Owen Wilson from ‘Idiocracy’ when he so aptly said ‘People used to write books and movies that had stories that made you care whose ass it was and why it was farting.’ These things are important too, and by the end of inSAYSHAble I felt strangely connected to this character – no matter how strange and different she was – she was suffering from her faults and I hoped she wouldn’t anymore.
inSAYSHAble’s brand of humor might not be for everyone but it does it all well. You should give it a shot, if you enjoy the first short episode you should like the rest. You can watch inSAYSHAble on ‘Funny or Die’ or by visiting their website http://insayshableonline.com
